Simple Start Up for New pools. New Surfaces.
A Simple Start-Up

No bulky tanks, hoses or plumbing fittings needed. Simply
choose a preferred start-up program such as the APSP General Start-Up Procedure
or The National Plasterers Council (NPC) Traditional New Plaster- Start-Up.
- Begin filling the pool. When the pool has filled
at least three feet add 1 qt. per 10,000 of Bio-Dex Protect-All Supreme as the
pool continues to fill*. Bio-Dex Protect
All Supreme prevents metal stains and scale. Also, it is very effective at
controlling and clearing excess plaster dust.
- Once the pool has filled completely and water
balance has been achieved add 1 qt. per 10,000 gallons of Aquadex 50 Stain-Off.
This will help to ensure continual control of scaling and act as a sequestering
agent against any metal staining.
- You may choose to allow the pool to fill
completely before adding any product. Balance the total alkalinity, pH and
calcium hardness according to recommended start-up procedures for your source
water. Then add the Bio-Dex Protect All Supreme. After 24 hours follow with the
AquaDex 50 Stain-Off.
- Once the pool is up and filter system is running
add Clearex 500 to sparkle up the water. Clearex 500 is non-toxic, will not
clog filters and will bring a superior clarity to the newly filled swimming
There is no need for a new pool start-up to be complicated,
time consuming and expensive. By following proven start up methods from APSP
and NPC along with Bio-Dex products, pool start-ups can be simple and very
efficient with superior results.
*Do not interrupt the filling of a newly surfaced pool at
any time. Turning off the fill water during the process of filling can lead to
waterline stains around the pool. Carefully follow preferred professional
start-up procedures and ensure that the water balance is adjusted according to
the ideal recommendations for pH,
total alkalinity and calcium hardness.
